News & Events

 
The Student Accessibility Service (SAS) assists students in Thompson and in The Pas through the Learners' Assistance Centre (LAC) at each campus. There is a Student Accessibility Service primary coordinator at the LAC in The Pas; and a Student Accessibility Service coordinator at the LAC in Thompson. The coordinators engage in SAS service in addition to their work with the LAC and students who utilize SAS services have access to them at all times. These two Student Accessibility Service coordinators work together to implement and coordinate the delivery of accessibility services for UCN students. SAS strives to provide accessible learning opportunities, and reasonable accommodations for all UCN registered students with permanent and/or temporary documented disabilities of all types; mental, physical, neurological or medical conditions.
 
Some accommodations available for students with special needs may include but are not limited to:
 
•        Assessment for accommodation needs, advocacy and disability counseling
•        Alternate formatting for textbooks, tests, assignments and exams
•        Separate space for test or exams
•        Proper assistive devices and equipment
•        Extended time for tests; assignments or Exams
•        Reasonable environmental accommodations
•        Referrals and requests for Tutoring, Invigilation, Proctor and Note Takers as needed
 
We invite you to connect with SAS at the Learners' Assistance Centres in The Pas (204-627-8541) to learn first-hand of the variety of support options available.  As each students needs are unique, the provision of services is designed individually; needs are determined by the nature of the disability, requirements of the curriculum or program of study, expectations in the classroom and the timeliness of the request.
 
UCN believes that students have the right and also the responsibility to determine whether or not to access support services. Support services do not provide students with any advantage over their peers; rather they help to eliminate competitive disadvantages. Please be advised that you are required to contact the SAS at the beginning of each semester, make an appointment to update your Individual accommodation plan and needs.
 
At Ucn, you will find an institution that believe in equal educational opportunity for all qualified students. Faculty, administrators and staff work closely with students to provide a continum of support services from the time of admission until graduation. If you haven't applied through student enrolment and you desire to apply now for accommodations - please call or email SAS at accessibility@ucn.ca or contact Nicole Myers in The Pas at 204-627-8541.
